HC Deb 16 December 1992 vol 216 c222W
Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will give the reasons for delaying the introduction of nurse prescribing; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Sackville

Competing priorities in the last public expenditure survey obliged us, very reluctantly, to postpone implementation of nurse prescribing. We will introduce nurse prescribing as soon as resources permit.
